    I was looking for a newspaper reader for the desktop, and i dont mean rss which cuts out the graphics etc.
    In macupdate there are few newspaper fetcher etc..But what would be cool would be something where the program will fetch the headlines cover page of any major newspaper in the world and display it as is on ure screen.You can have multiple views or just one. Haven't seen anything like that before. I can have the new york times or Chicago Tribune or the Herald etc side by side in exact newspaper fashion.

    Pls dont tell windows already has something like this...:eek:

    I agree; an application like this would certainly warrant me downloading it and giving it a try.

    On a side note, newspaper front pages are available at the Newseum website.

    Now webclip basically creates widgets of sites etc.So one could easily just hightlight the newspaper and create a widget.Or the whole page of newsmuseum
    cool
